Since I enjoy original places, this was one of it! The restaurant is completely decorated with old dolls hanging from the ceiling, toys on cabinets, and just a very unique concept. The bathroom was very interesting, too! You can exchange old toys for gift cards to eat/drink there :-) The food was good -not exceptional. I ordered salmon as the... More

This place spent a fortune on decor and in giving a theme to itself. They just forgot to. Put their investment in hiring a good chef and staff. Service is poor and food is mediocre.

Maybe I am a little too cynical, but this place for me looks more like out of a Stephen King novel... The decoration is just creepy, and to be honest I did not like to area where it is, at least not for dinner time. It looks like people go there for their birthday, I went on a Tuesday and... More

I experienced a wonderful atmosphere and good food. They have excellent background music. The layout of the restaurant is nice and the decorations are very creative; like nothing I have ever seen. Staff were very attentive and cordial.

This restaurat is near the historic the Center of Bogota, barrio 'la Macarena' Like the name suggest: the place is packed with old toys and gives is a kind of Alice in Wonderland look. However, since it is a restaurant let's talk about food. This is a meat restaurant where vegetables are just decoration. Served of a stone or iron... More

This place has to be seen to be believed. It is decorated with a collection of old toys and carnival paraphenalia from the floor to the rafters.... and the steaks are good! The menu is simple but good and well presented.Tables were set with party hats and sweets, as in a kids birthday, for groups celebrating together.

I've been here twice and have never been impressed with the food. The concept of the restaurant is inventive, but it disappoints once you taste the food and drinks. The coconut lemonade I ordered was without flavor and the chicken was a little dry. There are so many other great spots to eat in la Macarena, why come here?

I ate a churrasco which I ordered medium and was brought to me well done. It had a good taste but was over cooked for my taste. The decoration was, how do I say it, different in a creepy but interesting way. I passed by it, went in and the next day just had to eat there to experience the... More
